A Wee Grampian Adventure Fri 17th July - Sun 19th July 2020

This will be my first JT biker gathering since I moved to Bonnie Scotland and I've decided to do a 2 day run. Be great if any of you XJROC can come along, all the details you need below.


We will set off from The Robins Nest pub car park, Gilmerton Road, in the South of Edinburgh at 09:30 Fri 17th July.

We will ride West around the A720 Edinburgh Bypass and over the Queensferry Crossing then up the M90 before turning right and taking more interesting roads through Fife and stop for lunch at 'The Clattering Brig' cafe near Fetercairn

From here we will ride over the Cairn O'Mount and onto Banff for our overnight stay in The Fife Lodge Hotel

When booking rooms here mention Boxertrix to get a 10% discount on the B&B rate I have negotiated :wink:

We will eat in the hotel where the food is very good and they have a decent whisky collection too :occasion5:


Next morning, Sat 18th July we will head West through Dufftown then turn South at Tomintoul and ride one of, if not thee best routes I know following the A939 past the Lecht ski slopes then picking up the B976 to Crathie and then the A93 past Braemar Castle and through Braemar itself before climbing again and passing through the Glenshee Ski Slopes. Onto Blairgowrie and then skirting the edge of Perth before arriving back in Edinburgh Sat evening. I will book us all into a lovely restaurant I know in Edinburgh, The Salisbury Arms were the food, wine and service is superb :D once I have definite numbers.

We will stop for coffees and 'comfort breaks' over the two days when required.

If you want to ride up and stay the Thursday night 16th July refreshed and ready for the start Friday morning I'll leave you to book your own accommodation in Edinburgh because they are many and varied for all tastes and budgets. We can meet up for a pint to start the adventure off in a local pub on Thursday night too if anyone fancies that. Trip advisor or booking.com are my go to sites :wink:

If you are staying the Sat night that would be great too so we can talk bollox about the amazing roads and scenery we will have just experienced 8)

I will post menus from 'The Clattering Brig', Fife Lodge Hotel and Salisbury Arms when I receive them for pre-orders, which I will collect from you and forward on to the relevant restaurant.


Over to you :thumbup:
